Fresh Pineapple Frozen Yogurt Recipe

I am really loving pineapple this year.   I mean loving it so much that I made a Pineapple Gift box and had to make another because I couldn’t bear to part with the first one!  I am not even kidding!  This delicious pineapple frozen yogurt was adapted from my 4 ingredient Peach Frozen Yogurt.  It’s light, it’s creamy and it’s amazing!


How to Choose a Pineapple

To start out get a fresh pineapple.   I look for a heavy pineapple that is firm, but still has a bit of give when I squeeze it. It’s OK if the pineapple is still green, that does not mean it’s under-ripe.  I also give it a good sniff (close to the bottom of the pineapple) You will know it’s a good one when it smells sweet and pineapple-y!  <—yep that’s a word!

How to make Pineapple Frozen Yogurt

Slice the pineapple in half long ways and then I use a knife and cut slices in the flesh of the pineapple in crisscrosses, making sure to NOT cut through the shell of the Pineapple if you want to use it as a serving dish!    Note:  Pineapple’s have cores so I just kind of cut around that.

Score Flesh of Pineapple - be sure not to cut shell

I then use a spoon to scoop out the flesh of the pineapple and add it to my Blendtec Blender Pitcher.

Then, I added 1 small single serve container of vanilla Greek yogurt to the blender as well as the honey.  I blended until it was smooth and creamy.

Pineapple is fibrous so be sure to blend it really well.  I also strained through a mesh strainer to catch any of those fibers that didn’t get blended.

Pour into a loaf pan and place in the freezer for an hour.   You can also pour into popsicles or ice cube trays at this point and be done!  If you want scoopable pineapple frozen yogurt keep on reading!

After an hour, I take it out and mix it up again with a spoon and I repeat this maybe 2 more times.  This keeps the frozen yogurt from getting a hard icy layer on the top.  Pineapples do contain a lot of water.    From here you can scoop the pineapple frozen yogurt into the hollowed out pineapple shell for a super fun serving dish.

I love, love, love to add a scoop of this deliciousness to my protein shakes!  Makes me think that I am on a tropical island…when I am in my living room :)

  1. I´m from Germany. How much is “one single serving yogurt” in your country? Here it´s 150 g – would that be the amount you use?
